This city never ceases to amaze. We set off today to see St. Etienne du Mont, Michaels favourite church and the Jardin du Luxembourg at the palace and were delighted to discover many other beautiful areas on the way. The Pantheon, which is the museum of the French Revolution is stunning, the palace is now the parliament or Senat and the surrounding streets are quite breathtaking, and include the University of Legal Studies (études juridiques).
Now for the best news! Catering for these budding solicitors, judges and politicians was the best La Creperie in Paris. We dined like kings and to top it off they made fab coffee.
A tip for future travellers the new 2 or 3 day etc passes for the metro are NOT hours but calendar days. Hence our 2 day tickets only lasted for 1 day and 1 hour (we first used them at 11;15 pm day one of our visit) - not the case in Italy where they last 48 hours! Hence we had to buy an extra book of 10 tickets for the rest of our stay.
We are going to dinner with Jean Marc and Julian (Sophie's parents) at their house
tonight. Tomorrow a quick visit to Opera and then back to collect our luggage and proceed to Gare du Nord and the Eurostar bound for London. We will meet up with Nick (another of Michael's thousand children) at Simon and Sophie's in Hammersmith tomorrow night.
